Theme: Life

The Circus of Life

When I was overzealous for certain causes
I imagined so many adversaries, foes.
Life became unbearable.
I slowly unlearnt to be overzealous.
The task was not easy.

A kind of self de-addiction
I went through...
Observed others, read the Gita.
Reflected on Ram Thakur's words:
Things happen because
qualities differ.
Slowly, I am learning to be relaxed.
I blame myself less
for failures.

So many grind there axes.
I just pass them by...
Make light failings of them
and myself.

Now I have more friends,
I get sweeter smiles
from lasses
who had so much ego
that they will not look my way
hurting my feelings
making me more determined,
and still more zealous.

I have traversed the full circle
in life.
